Max Sosin: Entertainment His Hobby,
Public Service His 70-Year Record

During the High Holy
Days, in more than a score
of synagogues, the annual
appeal will be sounded in
behalf of the Israel Bond
Campaign. Conducting the
investment effort is Max
Sosin. It will be his way of
celebrating his 70th birth-
day.
This is typical of Max, the
popular raconteur, the man
whose entertainment de-
lights many audiences and
in the process encourages
support for the many causes
in which he is deeply in-
volved and towards which
he has dedicated himself
from his youth, in the 57
years of his residence in De-
troit.
His vocation is as a man-
ufacturer's representative
operating as the Sosin Sales
Co. His avocation is his love
for entertaining.
This is an avocation
that he pursues out of his
personal enjoyment of

NEW YORK (JTA) — Ac-
cording to statistics con-
tained in the latest annual
report published in Brussels
by the Association of Inter-
national Organizations, Is-

world in 1978 as an interna-
tional conference site. Some
130 international meetings
are scheduled in Israel in
1980-1981.

MAX SOSIN

telling Yiddish and other
stories, of singing and di-
recting choirs—all on a
voluntary basis. It is- so
much voluntary that it
costs him money. When
he entertains for a cause
in which he is involved,
he winds up an appeal for
funds by starting the con-
tributions with his own.
Max Sosin was born in
Gomel, Russia, on Rosh
Hashana in 1910. His father
died when he was a child
and he, therefore, was Bar
Mitzva at the age of 12. He
came to Detroit with his
mother, Alta, and sister,
Esther Weinstein, in 1923,
experiencing the horrors of
the anti-Semitic tirades of
World War I.
His mother died in 1925.
They were brought to De-

troit by an elder brother,
Nathan Sosin, whose candy
store in Detroit was a meet-
ing place for many.
Max studied in the Gar-
field Public School and
Central High School. He
retained a knowledge of
Russian and his mastery
of Yiddish, often demon-
strated in his storytelling
skill, began as a child in
Gomel.
His activities here in-
cluded several presidencies,
including Cong. Bnai David
and the City of Hope.
His synagogue affiliation
has an interesting char-
acter. He remains active in
Bnai David and he loves to
sing there. He is to this day
a member of the Bnai David
Choir, under the direction of
Cantor Hyman Adler.
His affiliations, all of
which are very active, are
varied. As indicated, he is a
leader in behalf of the Israel
Bond Organization. He is
active in the Jewish Na-
tional Fund, Magen David
Adorn for Israel, the Israel
Red Cross counterpart, the
Allied Jewish Campaign in
behalf of which he headed a
campaign section, the
Zionist Organization of
America — Detroit District,
serving now for the second
year as chairman of the Bal-
four Concert committee,
Yeshiva University, Bar-
Ilan University and, in fact,
wherever he can render
service.
The Lubavitcher are
among the movements
that count on him among
their supporters and the
Landsmanshaften speak
of him with affection of
his skill as an entertainer.
Max was married to the
former Ruth Greenstein in
1934. They have a son, Har-
vey, who is now president of

the Sosin Sales Co; a daugh-
ter, Mrs Philip (Sally)
Neuman; and six
grandchildren.
